YouTube channel Sander VS subjects various objects to a belt sander so we can see what’s in the middle. Think Hydraulic Press Channel meets What’s Inside. In this clip, they sand down a giant jawbreaker, revealing its colorful insides and leaving a fine layer of edible sawdust. They then do the same to a Rubik’s Cube and a golf ball.
Awesome Rubik’s Cubes
It may look like a Rubik’s Cube, but this 2x2x2 puzzle is much more. It has 24 LCD screens, 8 processors, motion and touch sensors, and plays a variety of mobile games. It can also be used to display information widgets on its screens. It’s expected to launch by late 2021 with a price of $249. Place your reservation here.
There are robots out there that can solve a Rubik’s Cube very quickly. But, while OpenAI’s design is decidedly slower, it works much more like a human, using its five robotic digits to maneuver and manipulate the cube with one hand, and learns to solve it using trial and error. Find out more about how it works here.
There’s already a robot that can solve a Rubik’s Cube in 0.38 second, but that thing takes up too much space. Thanks to miniaturization, and the smarts of Human Controller, we now have a completely self-contained version. It can only reverse a human’s moves at this point though.
